The city of Durham, New Hampshire, has canceled its traditional Christmas tree lighting event and its city decorations because a few snowflake liberals whined that is was all too Christian.
Because of the complaints of a few snowflakes, the city council decided to dump all its traditional Christmas events, and decorations.
Gone are the Christmas wreaths, the Christmas tree, Santa, and anything else even remotely deemed “religious,” CBS Boston reported.
It is such a reckless and extreme move that even a local Jewish leader thought the city has gone too far.
the first thing that residents noticed was that the city’s traditional Christmas decorations on light poles and other city properties were missing. No more would residents be treated to the traditional green Christmas wreaths hanging on the city’s light poles.
The city also canceled the Christmas tree lighting event that it has held for decades.
Other Christmas events were also canceled, and the city’s celebration was also renamed all its remaining activities the “Frost Fest” instead of using the word Christmas.
Town Councilor Sally Tobias said that the city decided to cancel all its Christmas-related events and decorations because some atheist complained that it all wasn’t “inclusive” enough.
“There were a couple of people that did express some concerns about how they felt being included,” the obsequious Tobias said.
But Rabbi Berel Slavaticki of the University of New Hampshire and Seacoast Chabad Jewish Center said that he thinks cancelling everything over a tiny number of complainers is un-American and that the city has gone too far.
“To stop cultures and faiths from practicing publicly would be very un-American. I think that’s the beauty of our country,” Slavaticki told reporters.
Slavaticki added that even the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that traditional Christmas decorations like wreaths and Christmas trees do not violate the U.S. Constitution.
